My life started in Memphis, TN, ruling the suburbs with bare feet and lemonade stands. When I was ten years old, my life took a turn as my family packed everything we owned to move to the land of olives and pomegranates. We spent four years living in Azerbaijan, followed by three years in the windy city of Istanbul, Turkey. Through the years I grew fond of seeing the world and exploring the beauty found in people and places – all through the lens of my camera.  Photography has allowed me to capture breathtaking views and fleeting memories, but more importantly, photography challenges me to continuously search for the beauty in God's creation.






There is something about a sleeping newborn that tugs at my heart! It's that heart-tug that I try to capture in each of my newborn sessions. No one should have to watch their children grow without having a photo to remind them of the tiniest details of their baby's first days. I photograph lifestyle newborn sessions in your home.


Families are such a joy for me to photograph! As your photographer, I strive to capture your families unique bond and to represent each family member’s personality. Every family has their own sense of humor, little quirks, and chemistry; because of this, it is my goal to provide you with candid pictures along with professional poses. As a natural light photographer, I shoot family sessions outdoors in order to provide you with the  highest possible quality. After your session, you will have photos of your family to cherish for years to come!



Couples sessions are a personal favorite of mine to shoot, whether it's a newly engaged couple or a 60 year anniversary shoot. There is just something so extraordinary to me about the way a girl looks at her new fiancé, or the way a man looks at the woman who he believes is the most beautiful soul in the world. I look forward to having a light-hearted, relaxing session, as you and your partner do what you do best - spend time together! I shoot couples sessions outdoors to make sure I capture that warm, dreamy light.



Wedding photography is all about capturing “those” moments: the tears on a fathers cheek as he looks at his little girl, the first time a groom lays his eyes on that perfect white dress walking down the isle, and of course, the “I do.” My goal as your wedding photographer is to package every single emotion into an album so that 20 years on when you look back, you can’t help but feel the same joy as you did on your big day.
